Technical LEGOŽ
by Jeremy McCreary
Add to my favorite builders )

The most important things in life I learned from my dogs. Most of the rest I learned by screwing up.

Thanks for dropping by!

Most of the MOCs here are working gizmos born of a fascination with gadgets and the science and engineering behind them. Technical LEGOŽ -- my term for building centered on Technic, Power Functions, and Mindstorms elements -- brings out my inner inventor/designer/engineer like no other medium.

Warning: Like this home page, my write-ups are way too long. I know it. I can't help it.

Please feel free to look at any or all of the images and just ignore the verbiage.



Of the scientific MOCs, I think the working 1:12 Mars Science Laboratory rover (aka Curiosity) below is by far the best.



Technical LEGOŽ gives me a chance to operate decent simulations of real machines (like the mining truck below) that my wife would never allow in the house or anywhere near it.



Hence, functional realism usually gets top priority, though with some attention to looks.

As you'll see with my Little Black Tank (below), my UniStand, and even with the truck above, I also enjoy cooking up back stories.



Recurring themes of late include working propeller-driven boats and land vehicles, a wind turbine, and other MOCs based on high-speed rotary motion -- including a variety of spinning tops, a 2-DOF gyro, and various flying LEGOŽ rotors (last 2 ready except for video). The Asteroid below is one of my better-looking tops.



The pattern-forming sliding-tile sketchpads like the Truchet tiler below move a lot more slowly, but they do move -- or at least the tiles do.



Every once in a while, I even allow myself to build something that doesn't move at all, like the Tug-in-a-Jug below. OK, OK, the water moves when you shake the bottle.



My work owes a great deal to the folks on my list of favorite builders. Their imagination and ingenuity never cease to amaze.

Hope you'll stay tuned, as I still have many more MOCs to post.

Folders

Some of these MOCs really belong in more than one folder, but MOCpages doesn't support that. So, if you find something of interest in one folder, you may well find similar MOCs in others.

Inside some of the folders:
Topped Out: Many different hand and power tops and (soon) a working 2-DOF gyroscope.
Motorized Boats and Ships: Working Power Functions boats, mostly built for speed.
Wind Power: Working propeller-driven carts and a 0.85W wind turbine.
Patterns from Tiles: Pattern-forming sliding-tile sketchpads.
Scientific MOCs: MOCs inspired by real science.
Machines and Gizmos: Includes a working floating-arm trebuchet.
Gears Gone Wild: Illustrated tutorials on gearing and axle support and reinforcement.
